5* Farm to visit .
Sep 2021 • Family
Plenty of parking spaces for the park,farm and Hotel. The kids playground is outside the farm so it's free if you don't visit the farm.

The farm is big as the animals are not all crushed into one place.

The only animals that you might pet is the small goats as there isn't a double fence round them like other animals.

2 adults and 2 kids 1 year old and 2 year old, have a great time.

Cheap to enter for the farm you see and animals you see compared to other farms about the North East of Ireland.

Highlight of the summer!!
Jul 2021 • Family
I visited with two young children a couple of weeks ago. The visit was top class from start to finish. All members of staff we encountered were so friendly and so professional and had a great attitude towards the children. The highlight of the trip was our tour around Newbridge House. Both children on the trip had special needs, and can find it difficult to concentrate and stay still for long periods. Without even having to be asked our tour guide (an Italian man, I'm so sorry I can't remember his name) tailored the tour for our needs. He is an absolute credit to you, and deserves a special mention. I'm sorry that I cannot remember his name. The children still talk about our visit and said it was the highlight of all the summer trips over tayto park and the zoo. Food in the cafe was beautiful, and staff there were also extremely accommodating. Will definitely be recommending to family, friends and colleagues in school. Will definitely be returning again next summer!!

A Fantastic Day
Jun 2021 • Family
What a fantastic day . I visited Newbridge house and Gardens today with my wife and 5 year old daughter. We are from Cork and staying in Dublin for 3 nights . This is truely a fantastic place. We did the house tour which costs very little extra but it was fascinating. Our tour guide, who was Italian was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. He encouraged questions and answered everyone like a true professional. Afterwards we visited the coffee shop. My one regret is that I had a full breakfast before I arrived so I unfortunately could only manage a coffee. My daughter had a beautiful choc rice Krispee cake which was finished in record time. The menu is small but top class. You can even have a full Irish breakfast .Can’t wait to return and try a toastie or a paper cone full of chips with sauce, even the 99 cone looked scrumptious. Then we moved into the farm area. It was so well kept and the animals looked so happy. My favourite was the goat at the start of the tour. A real character. When all is finished, make sure you check out the shop. Great quality soft toys and other Irish products and very reasonable prices. I couldn’t say one bad thing about this place . We were staying in the Premier Inn in Swords and it took just over ten minutes to get to Newbridge house. Would highly recommend a visit. Great location , very friendly and professional staff, beautiful food, great shop and a fantastic character of a goat as well as the other animals. What are you waiting for?? Book a trip. We are returning in 3 weeks. Can’t wait .

Good if you like being creeped out
Mar 2020 • Friends
This place totally creeped me out. Scared the heck out of me. This is important to factor in when deciding to go here. The Dracula film type Georgian decor and servants quarters where the poor staff would have been overworked and dreadfully abused did not make me feel good. I felt really sick being in this house. It’s important for people to be honest and not just go with what they feel they are supposed to say. I can’t be the only person who feels this way. Save your money guys unless you like seeing how upper class people abused the poor low class servants.

Something for everyone!
Aug 2020
Having passed the sign on the motorway many times, I was delighted to finally get to visit Newbridge House and Farm on the 23rd. What a surprise! We really enjoyed the tour of the house, which was delivered in an informative and relaxed way. I think our guides name was Tuan.

The grounds and farm are beautiful and really well kept. There is a great variety of animals and birds - some of which were quite exotic. The grounds are free, and what you pay to visit the house/farm is well worth it.

I had no expectations, and must say I was pleasantly surprised. A visit here is a great way to spend a few hours and I'd highly recommend it.

Great Afternoon
Aug 2020 • Family
Visited the house and farm yesterday with my husband and 6year old son. It was fantastic. The tour of the house was amazing. Our tour guide Hayley was so friendly, professional and unbelievably knowledgeable. We visited the farm after the tour of the house. It is well worth a visit, we will definitely be returning

Great amenities here for families
Aug 2020 • Family
We brought one of my daughters and her two youngest here today as a treat to visit the farm.
To make it even better the weather was fantastic, we could not have picked a nicer day to visit.
You need to book online for the farm visit during the current restrictions. Coffee show and ice cream van have slow queues too.
The grounds and the farm are fabulous and extremely well maintained to enhance your experience here. This is a great place to spend a pleasant afternoon.
